Just Call Me 'Chef Krista'

I went to bed last night at 10:00 and didn't wake up until 8:30. Holler for 10+ hours of sleep yo! I definately needed it.

Lunch was leftover Jimmy John's from yesterday:

That would be a #12: Beach Club with no mayo on 7-grain bread. Delish.

Plus carrots and hummus:


After hitting the gym this afternoon for a quick upper body lift, I was way excited to come home and make this Chicken and Black Bean Chili that I found in the latest Muscle and Fitness Hers:

Side note: I LOVE this magazine. I anxiously await it's arrival every two months and then devour the entire thing within days. Even if you're not into lifting weights, it still has lots of great tips, recipes, and work out ideas.

For someone who doesn't cook very often, nothing makes you feel more grown up than choppin' up onions and peppers for your own homemade chili ;)

Plus doing all those other chef-like things, like cooking them.

And then turning them into chili.

Ta da!

Just call me Chef Krista :)

Hmm...I suppose those pajamas aren't very chef-like. I never said I was a pro!

Garnished with some cilantro.

The recipe said to garnish with a little sour cream as well, but I wasn't really in the mood. Plus I sort of didn't have any.

Final verdict? Not bad, but I've definately had better chili (i.e. my mom's pumpkin chili..wowza!). Don't think I'll be making this one again.

Tomorrow's Martin Luther King day so we get the day off of class. Guess what we'll be doing all day?! I'll give you a hint, it involves these:

Please ignore the nasty sink next to the pretty skiis. I was too lazy to move them.

Anyone else have the day off tomorrow? Any fun plans?


  1. Nice Skis! Chili looks pretty good also lol. Have fun shredding tomorrow. Love Dad

  2. I definitely ran downstairs and got some carrots/hummus after reading the first part of your post :) Have fun skiing!! I have the day off as well and am planning on a hike!
